    Hello,

    The extended logging for email sending forms includes the full server path to accessing the sending script. This knowledge is something that makes it easier for hackers to track down the mailing programs/modules in sites and then exploit them.

    Please consider using a hash function, so that only the server administrator could reverse what the calling script was.

    Go on, have a guess
    How do you foresee user accounts being able to read exim_mainlog with its configured default permissions? Since they can't, the issue is moot.
